Topic: Jarallax video: no repeat

twentyfour pro asked 4 years ago

Good afternoon everybody,

I created a jarallax video that can be set through the WordPress Customiser. So far, so good: everything is working. Except for the fact that the video loops. I don't want it to loop but on the reference page, it states that the default is no-repeat?

I use this code:

div class="jarallax" data-jarallax-video="mp4:./video/local-video.mp4,webm:./video/local-video.webm,ogv:./video/local-video.ogv"> Your content here... /div

Does anyone has any idea how to stop this video from repeating?

Hi Milolaj,

yes I tried several options like speed and such, but it doesn't seem to work. Nothing I try to change, like speed: -1, affects the data-jarallax-video. I solved it using jQuery and I remove the "loop" attribute after the DOM loaded. But that's not really the proper way to do it.

Hi there again,

Did You try to set videoEndTime value?

Best regards

Hi @Mikolaj,

unfortunately I don't have those attributes. I'm using the data-jarallax-video attribute instead of video and source. This is how the documentation describes it. Also according to the documentation here on, I should implement the following:

$('.jarallax').jarallax({ videoLoop: false, });

But alhtough it loads perfectly, it has no effect: the video keeps looping.

Thanks for the help,

kind regards

Hi there,

No-repeat value is connected with the background-image css property, not video. To disable loop Your video element should have the following attributes:

playsinline autoplay muted

Best regards
